Help! What size tire can I use?
I am putting on a 2.5" skyjacker lift on my 2009 Unlimited - and I want to use the STOCK rims. My original equipment tires are 255/75/R17's. This is the first lift I'm doing myself and need to know what size tires I can put on there - If I keep the original tires on there, I think it will look weird with the 2.5" of lift, by the way, I dont want huge super swamper tires, just making it look a little more beefy - so giant tires are not an option, just something to beef it up a bit and give a little more ground clearance... Thank you all!

I am sure you can do 33x12.50's with no problem, you may even be able to squeeze some 35's in as well if you dont mind some rubbing.

Wheel spacers and 285/70-17 Duratraks sound good for what you describe.

:D I have Hankook Dynapros LT 295/75x16 and Spidertrax 1.5" spacers

No lift (yet) and they rubbed on the stock bumper, so I just got a new OLYMPIC bumper

Now these are,Spec wise 33.4 in, and installed 33 inch, most of the other (33"tires will end up 32"+ installed

So keep it all in mind !!
